Harford County Sheriff’s Office detectives are investigating two shootings which occurred in the last three days, one in Edgewood Monday afternoon which sent a man to Shock Trauma in critical condition, and another in Aberdeen Saturday in which a South Carolina man visiting relatives for a funeral was shot in the arm.
Police said deputies responded to a call about a shooting which occurred Monday at approximately 4:15 p.m. in the 1700 block of Fountain Rock Way in Edgewood. The victim, a 22-year-old Edgewood male, had been shot in the torso.
The victim was transported to Shock Trauma by Maryland State Police and was listed in critical condition late Monday night, according to Harford County Sheriff’s Office Monica Worrell. A suspect has been identified, and the shooting does not appear to have been a random act of violence.
Anyone with additional information about the incident is asked to contact Detective Chris Sergent of the Criminal Investigation Division at 410-836-5428.
Meanwhile, on Saturday at approximately 2:20 p.m., deputies responded to Upper Chesapeake Medical Center for a report of a shooting. Police said the victim, Christopher Graham, 21, of Manning, S.C., had been shot in the arm in front of the VFW hall in the 200 block of Spesutia Road in Aberdeen while visiting relatives for a funeral.
Graham was transported from UCMC to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center for his injuries, but has since been released and has returned to South Carolina.
Worrell said the shooting also does not appear to be a random act of violence, but said Graham and witnesses to the incident have been uncooperative during the investigation. Worrell said it is not clear whether a suspect in the shooting and Graham had prior knowledge of each other before the shooting occurred.
Anyone with information about the Aberdeen incident is encouraged to contact Detective Andrew Lane of the Harford County Sheriff’s Office at 410-836-5431.
